Hey there! If you’ve been following Modern Muse Studio, for any amount of time, you’ll notice we talk a lot about Boudoir. We haven’t really explained what Boudoir is and even what it means.
Boudoir is the French word for a woman’s bedroom. It makes sense that a boudoir photo shoot is typically thought of as a sexy photo shoot…. However, boudoir is so much more.
Yes, Clients typically wear sexy outfits – lingerie, stockings, undergarments, dresses, etc. It doesn’t always have to be like that though! Personally, when we think of a boudoir shoot, we think of it as more of a confidence booster and an opportunity for women to find themselves again.
While some women believe wearing sexy clothing helps build their confidence, we know that’s not always the case. Sexy isn’t one size fits all. Many women choose to wear items of clothing that they wear every day, and others will wear something out of their norm. It is different for each and every client we photograph. (For example.- a tank or tee, a fitted button-down shirt, a robe, a jersey, etc.) We welcome your creative input and of course, love to help you dream up the best and most beautiful version of yourself.
While some women choose to do a shoot for a significant other (birthday gift, wedding present, anniversary, etc.), it typically ends up being a gift for themselves more than anything. And girl, let us tell you… we are here for that. Sessions do SO MUCH to lift you up and give you back a sense of self. Most importantly, a refreshed feeling of confidence. So, yes, Your partner will look lovingly at the images too, but the true feeling of transformation will only be felt by you, our client, and the subject of the images.
Most of our clients have shared that booking a shoot initially brought on feelings of anxiety & nervousness. In the end, they ended up sharing that this is one of the best things they’ve done for themselves in a very long time. We are here for you every step of the way. We can often talk you through the different feelings and emotions you may feel before your session. Always reach out!
Here at Modern Muse Studio, we have a way with women, and with cameras. We see clients in a way that, unfortunately, they rarely see themselves. It’s not magic – it is being willing to be vulnerable enough to put yourself out there to let someone show you a different side of yourself. Let us show you how beautiful you are.
You never know where that newfound confidence will take you!
